The Miami Dolphins are 6-6 and fighting for a playoff spot, Richie Incognito’s alleged mistreatment of Jonathan Martin is back to the forefront.
According to ESPN.com’s James Walker, Ted Wells, the NFL’s lead investigator, will meet with Martin on Thursday in Los Angeles for a second round of questioning. Walker said Wells will present his findings from previous interviews of Dolphins players, coaches and front office executives to Martin. Prior to Thursday, Martin and Walker met on November 15 in New York to discuss the allegations.
In addition, ESPN’s Adam Schefter said Wells will meet with Dolphins players again.

According to Walker, Wells will conduct a second round of interviews, plus meet with Incognito, who was suspended by the team. The purpose of those interviews is to clarify some of Wells’ previous findings.
The league is expected to wrap up its investigation in a few weeks. Martin was recently placed on the Dolphins’ non-football injury list, which ended his season. Incognito is currently serving his suspension, but recently reached an agreement with the team to receive two weeks of retroactive pay, plus game checks for two additional weeks.
At this point, both men are probably ready for this situation to be settled. Just about everyone else is prepared to turn the page.
